The problem with pulseaudio is that crux use

Thus, causes puseaudio to hangs in sem_wait() function from

I can see that other distros doesn't use and they
rely entirely on

Obviously cause problem in my case, but I cannot
just remove it.
If I remove it, pusleaudio complains that this library is missing and
I don't understand how to make pulseaudio to link against instead

My question is how to make transition from to and completely remove
